Modular Fuel Technology to Boost Bio-Share of Oil Refineries

Submitted by on September 21, 2017 – 8:50 pmNo Comment

(VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland/Biomass Magazine)  EU-funded project COMSYN aims to develop a production concept for competitive biobased fuels by means of a compact gasification and synthesis process. The target reduction of the biofuel production cost is up to 35 percent compared to alternative routes, which translates to less than €0.80 per liter production cost for diesel.

The production concept is based on the distributed primary conversion of various kind of biomass residues to intermediate liquid products at small-to-medium scale (10,000-50,000 tons per year Fischer-Tropsch products, 30-150 MW biomass) units located close to biomass resources. The Fischer-Tropsch products will be upgraded to fuels in existing central oil refineries, also bringing the benefits of economy of scale for the overall process.

The smaller scale of primary conversion lowers the risks of the investment, which has been the main bottleneck for large-scale biofuel plants. Integration of the primary conversion to local heat and power production is estimated to result in 80 percent energy efficiency in biomass utilization.  READ MORE
